"The American University Summer Internship Program changed me for the better. I could feel myself growing as a writer everyday under the guidance of my editors. I covered everything from new legislation to congressional hearings to Supreme Court rulings. My journalism class re-enforced the skills and resources I needed for my internship. Even when I wasn't at class or my internship, I was exploring the city and learning how to take care of myself as an adult. I can honestly say after returning to my home college, I was more organized and revitalized for my senior year."
